(applause) >> thank you. thank you very much. we have a great audience here in new york and welcome to huckabee from the fox news studios in new york city. i might have been one of the first people to bluntly point out that the obama administration is not transparent and covering up scandals and lying to the american people. and now with the white house caught in the middle of three separate scandals, benghazi, and irs targeting of conservative groups and the justice department illegal probe in the journal phone records, the rest of the media is starting to catch up including the pundits who praised the president. >> he's accountable for it and i am offended by. it it is not a political or conservative or liberal. it is trusting your government. >> the transparency thing is crumbling. >> the president held a press government and he did well. he had been listening to their
of the job president obama is doing. now, that poll was taken after this tough week. so it looks like the controversies have not eroded his support among the american people. >> is there anything inside the poll that says why not? because i think the convention gnat wisdom was going into it that he'd been hurt. >> absolutely. the numbers do tell a story. for one thing, his approval is largely unchanged from the 51% we found in our last poll that was in early april and up from his low of 47% in mid-march. so a couple of points here, one, he's seen as out there responding to these controversies especially the irs. quickly he's showing outrage, continuing with his job. remember, president clinton maintained an approval above 50% throughout the monica lewinsky scan d.a. daal chlt /* /- scandal. republicans very critical, democrats supportive, independents divided. people are still reflecting what we saw before the controversies. >> that's kind of unsurprising that republicans would be more upset about it. so we've had a little more than a week of the news about the irs, specifically when
speech. that's pretty much what it boils down to. >>> president obama said today that that is the whole reason he got involved in politics in the first place. >> we also live in a democracy where a free press, free expression, and the open flow of information helps hold me accountable, helps hold our government accountable and helps our democracy function. and the whole reason i got involved in politics is because i believe so deeply in that democracy and that process. >> president obama speaking today. is he right about his own articulated history. he has been making the case about the importance of our open government from the very beginning. it was certainly a big part of why he ran for president. >> i'll make our government open and transparent so that anyone can ensure that our business is the people's business. a justice once said sunlight is the greatest disinfectant. >> so that's part of why we've had so much trouble is we haven't invited the american people to participate in the process. that's why i always focus on accountability and transparency in our government. >> that is

on or e-mail us. "usais the front page of today." "gop demands obama apology." collins was on cnn. let's listen to what she has to say. [video club] >> this contributes to the profound distrust that the american people have in government. it is chilling that the irs was singling out conservative groups for extra review. it is very disappointing that the president has not personally condemned this and spoken out. his spokesman has said it should be investigated, but the president needs to make court -- crystal clear that this is totally unacceptable in america. host: that was senator susan collins of maine talking about the irs. inside, the irs case is fodder for partisan warfare. that it targeted conservative groups for additional scrutiny during the 2012 election, it could jeopardize efforts for the elections. host: we have also seen this headline on the front pages of other newspapers. "the washington post," we are finding out more information about what the report contains, but they obtained the documents from a congressional aide with knowledge of the finding. host: inside of
. this is bret baier in washington. there are busy news days and days like today. president obama weighed in on scandals like benghazi and the irs targeting conservative groups. breaking news on a potential third scandal. this one involves the justice department and the associated press. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge here with breaking details. >> the president of the associated press confirms in a letter to eric holder the department of justice seized records from more than 27 phone lines assigned to the associated press and journalists affecting ap bureaus in new york city. hartford, connecticut and the house of representatives. the letter states that the extraordinary action was taken without advanced notice to the a.p. or journalists affected. in possible justification for overbroad communications of the associated press and its reporters. these records potentially reveal communications with confidential sources. we regard this action by the department of justice as a serious interference with the a.p.'s constitutional rights to gather and report the news. while
or campaign involvement where somebody in the obama administration might have said, you know, we ought to look at these tea party people. they're raising a ton of money. maybe they're doing it illegally and getting involved in campaigning. according to this ig report that didn't happen. >> right. this is all internal. again, if i were a member of congress and i want to -- i'd sit there and say, you know what? i want to question these individuals. i want to question the individuals in the cincinnati office. i want to know what made them come up with this criteria. what -- >> you mean ask if they had their own prejudice? >> yeah. their own prejudices, the same questions, frankly, that they were asking of these groups. these were sort of -- you know, the request for names of donors. they were making requests of all issues that are important to the organization. these were some -- it was clear that they were looking to see, you know, specifics on conservative groups, potentially. why were they doing that? what was their motivation in doing that? here you get a little bit in the report that says, w
. "hardball" starts right now. >>> taking charge. let's play "hardball." >>> president obama showed who was boston. the boss is the one who can fire you and fire someone he did. the head of the irs is out. obama said he was asked for his resignation and he gave it. so now it's time to head into the bows of that tax agency and find out who else thought it was a great idea to tilt government's case against people on one side of the political spectrum and leave the others off the hook. tonight in this second edition of "hardball," we know what was missing. the perception of leadership in the u.s. government. we have a leader. he is the president. david corn, washington bureau chief from mother jones bureau chief. and howard, start with this. the implications of the president, taking that microphone at 6:00 tonight. knocking off the acting head of the irs saying we'll do the i.g. report. by the way, we'll work with the other guys in getting to the bottom of this. >> i think this is the president that people who support him, who want to see him clean up the various messes in town were waitin
, arrogance, or simply imcompetence? the obama administration and the irs scandal. this is "special report". >> bret: good evening. i'm bret baier. what has easily been the longest week of barak obama's presidency ended up with a focus today on a subject every american can relate to, taxes. the question of whether the white house had anything to do with the irs targeting conservative groups for special scrutiny. we have fox team coverage tonight with all the obama scandals. wendell goler with the story of an irs official's new job coming after more of your money over obamacare. we begin with chief congressional correspondent and the man in the hot seat on capitol hill. good evening. >> good evening. after a week of intense heat on the irs, today the agency did not back down insisting there was not a bias against conservatives. >> i resigned because as the acting commissioner, what happens in the irs, whether i was personally involved or not, stops at my desk. so i should be held accountable for what happens. >> the outgoing acting commissioner explained his upcoming departure days after a
barack obama, for whatever reason. it's that kind of day in the news. >>> today is scandal o'clock all day long. we saw the guy forced out of the irs grilled about the tax agency using single key words to skrine out people for scrutiny. he did tell two higher-ups last june that he was going to be doing this investigation into how the conservative groups were treated. he told the deputy treasury secretary and the general counsel at treasury that he was starting this inquiry as to whether conservatives were being unfairly singled out. he told them he was starting this inquiry but obviously not what the inquiry had found since he hadn't found anything yet since he was just getting started. republicans have seized on this news because of the timing. saying it's important there were administration officials outside just the irs itself who knew before the election that there was at least a potential problem with the irs targeting conservative groups. shouldn't that have been disclosed publicly? could that have become a salient issue in the election had the administration disclosed that inves
, the obama administration will not admit the threat of international terrorism remains real. they didn't want to admit it was a terrorist attack in libya two months before the election. six days after obama himself said, accepting the democrat's nomination for president that al qaeda was on the road to defeat. that's why it's so important, not just because of the tragedy in benghazi, although that would make it important. because of the administration's world view about international terrorism is now shown to be wrong. >> do you think it's a fair assessment to say that. they have the drones, targeting killing? >> they have defined al qaeda to be a very narrow group of people living in waziristan near the afghanistan border, that's the thrust of their argument that al qaeda is on the road to defeat. but the problem is obviously much larger and reflects itself in a lot of ways after the boston marathon bombing, the president's top political adviser, david axelrod said, well, you know, the president thought given we didn't know for sure it was after all april 15, tax day, implying maybe some of
: tomorrow it's still barack obama's time but republicans are focusing on hillary clinton in 2016. us, especially women my age, find it hard to think of what it would be like to have a as first lady, but as head of state, chief executive and commander-in-chief. already, hillary's time at secretary of state is getting a legions of menas and women say it's her turn. did we do it right? this show back at how called hillary's last run for president. were we smart? were we? did we see how newcomer barack would edge her out. twixters, kids under 30. great.l think they're how's that positive feeling working out for them. i'm chris matthews and welcome to the show. with us today, howard fineman with "the huffington post," news,o'donnell with nbc s.e. cupp with msnbc and joe klein with "time magazine." up, hillary clinton's in the news and that brings up her future presidential plans. to decide whether or not to make it official to run again. howard, this is the great question. do you expect her to run? >> i do, no doubt. chris: kelly? that way. chris: what a perfectly careful comment. absolut
, president obama said in a statement the report's findings are, quote, intolerable and inexcusable, promising to follow through on the inspect general's recommendations. the white house has denied any role in the irs scandal. but republicans say the administration cannot be trusted. >> what we don't know at this point is whether it jumped the fence from the irs to the white house. but we do know this. we can't count on the administration to be forthcoming about the details of this scandal because so far they've been anything but. >> on this one, the criticism, not just from republicans. former white house press secretary robert gibbs says the president mishandled his response. >>> the tenor of this briefing would be different if the president had spoken about this on saturday or sunday and not on monday. and if the president had spoken on monday, less about losing patience for this, which is what i do with my 9-year-old, and used far more vivid language. and i think come out and announced that there would be a commission made up of a former -- two former commissioners, irs commissioners. demo
, to a government that delivers the facts, good or bad, no matter what. president obama promised to be different and to deliver a better government, the most transparent in history. >> and democrat charlie rangel of new york defending the white house in watergate era language. >> how did this happen? who was responsible for it? how far does this cancer go? how quickly can we cut it out? chris: howard, that's john dean language, cancer on the presidency. strong words. i'm not sure he intended to go that far. he did. has the president begun to get control of this baby or is he still leading from behind waiting to read things in the paper? >> what is at issue is not just the obama presidency, it's the whole idea for government for which obama stands. government can have a positive role in people's lives. instead of having that as a symbol, instead of saying obama care which the president defends and a lot of people like, or medicare and social security, you have a model an intrusive an unfair political internal revenue service that goes to the very heart of the conservative argument against obama a
? and this morning i unwrapped a beautiful box of crippling scandal for the obama administration. first up, benghazi. how bad is it, folks? nation, you better sit down and buckle up because you should not be standing while watching tv in the car. now, everyone knows this was an unquestionable tragedy where four americans lost their lives in what we now know were vicious terrorist attacks. but listen to how obama callously described them the next day. >> no acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation. >> stephen: what? acts of terror? they were terrorist attacks. am i the only one who feels this way? darell issa. >> an act of terror is different than terrorist attack. >> stephen: yes. they're totally different. you say potato, i say what do the po-tah-toe know and when did he know it? now the only people who have been talking about this story for the past seven months have been me and fox news. but from the rest of television and radio, silence. jim? >> across the mainstream media it was a collective yawn in response to yesterday's benghazi coverage. >> why are the media ignoring
the obama administration's abuse of power, contradictory statements by obama administration it may be on set of a constitutional crisis, a defensive and aggressive president today, wildly miscointreauing previous statements by him and his administration regarding the benghazi terror attacks while coming fors first time on a potential crisis involving internal revenue service practice of targeting conservative groups. and pretty much anyone who disagrees with the way that the federal government is being run by the administration. we begin with benghazi, president obama, presented a nixonion front during a press conference with british prime minister cameron, angry president obama laying blame for continuing questions over terrorist attacks on his political opponents, and severely minimizings importance of the false ambassador susan rice talking points that went on to blame the benghazi attack on an amateurish anti-islam youtube video. >> whole issue of this -- of talking points, frankly throughout this process has been a side show. we have been very clear about throughout, was that immediatel
another scandal rocking the obama administration this morning. shocking news the justice department secretly obtained two months of phone records from reporters and from editors that work for the associated press. >> this comes as the white house is already on the defense about benghazi and the terror attacks and the irs targeting a conservative group. kelly wright with the newest details on the benghazi investigation. but we start with anna kooiman and the government seizure of secret procedures. unprecedented violation of the freedom of the press. the justice department under fire as attorneys for the associated press say it secretly obtained records for 20 phone lines both work and personal. they scanned several bureaus the press gallery and house of representatives. more than 140 reporters work in the offices where the records were taken. >> they haven't told us what they were looking for or why we didn't get prior notice. this seems to be very broad and we don't really know what it's about. >> the white house saying it has no knowledge of the doj inquiry. jay carney said we hav
. the obama white house facing the prospect of a looming constitutional crisis, a political crisis that the president and his inner circle seems to worsen with each passing day. the president and hiss -- his staff defending the administration against there's controversies and scandals now forcing the president to pivot focus on the presidential legacy to the presidential future. the benghazi coverup, the irs enemies list, targeting conservatives, and now the justice department must account for the extraordinary seizure of the phone records of the associated press reporters and editors. attorney regime eric holder today trieded to justify those seizures calling them part of the effort to identify the source of a leak that holder said compromised national security. holder, however, refused to answer why the justice department didn't first seek the voluntary cooperation of the associated press. when asked, holder announce it was the deputy, james cole, who signed the subpoena to seize the records, and, today, we learned holder rescued himself from the case because the fbi's investigat
exactly the day, this is unusual for the obama administration, one of the things the president has a problem with is quick response, they're really slow off the dime. but once they get into action they're better at reeling it in. it looks like president obama is finally in response mode and getting his foot in. he is starting today, piers. >> and the irs, possibly the biggest of the three scandals. tell me this, why is the acting commissioner, steven miller, why want there a real one? why has he had to go, when from what i hear he was not actually running the irs when all of this went on? >> you asked the money question because that is what everybody was e-mailing me to ask. no, he was not in charge when this happened. but you know, the man on top always takes the fall when something gets screwed up, bottom line, right? he was not in charge when all of this went down. but he is in he was in charge when there was misrepresentation of this problem to congress. so he has to take some responsibility for that. and the auditor's report found there was shoddy management when he was on top
and he's written a letter to president obama, wanting to know what if any private pressure was exerted by the white house or treasury department political appointees on the irs regarding the standards for approving monitoring tax-exempt organizations. particularly 501 c groups. >> take the word of the independent inspector general who said he found no evidence from outside the irs. >> you believe there are none? >> we're going to work with congress as the president said, in legitimate oversight, we're not going to participate in distracting from the real issues at hand. >> when senator portman is asking for documents or e-mails you're not going to comply with that request? >> we'll look at any request that congress puts forward. >> but bottom line, no communications as far as you know from the white house to the irs. >> absolutely not. >> at the hearings on friday, the acting director, outgoing acting director of the irs, mr. miller was asked about the legality of targeting the special scrutiny of the conservative groups. here was the questioning. >> do you believe it is illegal for em
for an end to the administration's stonewalling. martha: president obama respond to the report in a statement. earlier he said he hadn't had a chance to look it over. i have now had the opportunity to review the report on irs personnel who improperly targeted groups and the friengsd intolerable and inexcusable. the federal government must conduct itself in a way that's worthy of the public's truth and that's especially true of the irs and its employees must act with utmost integrity. all of this raises so many questions and the irs is about to become in many ways even more powerful when the president's healthcare law kicks. it is the agency's job to enforce some key pieces of the healthcare plan. remember that? this means irs agents will soon be collecting even more of your personal information to decide whether you are eligible for the subsidies allowed under the healthcare program. stuart varney joins me now on there is. does this scandal stoke more fears about how healthcare will be enacted, stuart? >> reporter: absolutely, yes, it does. it's beginning to have a continues impact, especiall
: the second thing we need an answer to is about president obama. the president that night, by all accounts, never went back to leon panetta, never went back to hillary to get an update on the situation on benghazi. he went to sleep, got up the next day, went out campaigning. then two weeks later on "the view," before the united nations, was still echoing something that all of us knew was false, that by then he should have known was false. so doesn't he have questions to answer here? what did he know, when did he know it, why was he repeating a lie two weeks later? >> absolutely he has to answer. he's the one, we don't have any accounting for the vast part of that night. hillary clinton, as you say, these are many of her top advisors, coming up with changes, or pushing revisions. is it really possible she didn't know? >> sean: who are the people in the state department we're referring to, what did they know it, why did they know it, and the reason we need to prevent this from happening again, and the perso american people, and e families who lost loved ones, have a right to know. anything y
of the prostitutes at his parties were allegedly paid to dress up like president obama, for whatever reason. yeah, it is just that kind of day in the news. >>> but in washington today, it is still scandal o' clock. all day long. grilled in a congressional agency with using political sounding words, under scrutiny. the attorney general said he did tell two higher ups at treasury last june he was going to be doing this investigation into how the conservative groups were treated. he told the deputy treasury secretary and he told the general council treasury that he was starting this inquiry into whether conservatives were unfairly singled out. he told them he was starting the inquiry but obviously not what the inquiry found since he hadn't found anything yet because he was just getting started. republicans seized on this news today because of the timing. saying it is important that there were administration officials outside just the irs itself who knew before the election that there was at least a potential problem with the irs targeting conservative groups. shouldn't that have been disclosed publi
, and to pursue mr. obama's second term agenda. joining us now is the president's senior advisor dan pfeiffer. dan, welcome back to "fox news sunday." >> thank you, chris. >> chris: president obama was asked a broad question about the irs scandal this week and gave a narrow answer. let's take a look. >> can you assure the american people that nobody in the white house knew about the agency's actions before your counsel's office found out on april 22nd? >> i can assure you that i certainly did not know anything about the ig report before the ig report had been leaked to press. >> chris: so he only talked, the president, about the ig report. the question was broader about any agency irs activities. can you say that no one at the white house knew anything about the irs targeting conservatives before information about the ig report was given to the white house in april? >> yes. the first time, as we said, that anyone heard about this at the white house was when the counsel's office at the treasury department called the white house a few weeks ago to let us know there was an investigation coming to con
, targeting conservative groups, leading up to the 2012 general election. and new questions over the obama administration's handling of the benghazi attack. we first start this morning with benghazi. you know, after hearings last week, lawmakers are speaking out, focusing on a string of emails that seem to suggest there were a lot more changes in the initial official story than first thought. good morning and welcome to a brand-new hour of america's news headquarters. >> jamie: hi, everybody. happy mothers day. press secretary jay carney took some serious heat this week -- a lot of people did on the issue, from white house reporters. this was on friday. >> eric: absolutely. but now a growing number of lawmakers are calling on house speaker john boehner to create a select committee to investigate the benghazi attack. steve centanni is live in washington with the latest on that. good morning, steve. >> reporter: good morning, eric. plenty of friction on the sunday talk shows, on the revelation of emails that show revisions in the controversial talking points about what happened. republicans
from new york, i'm chris hayes, and thank you for joining us. tonight, president obama comes out swinging after a weekend of benghazi outrage by republicans. >> the whole issue of this -- of talking points, frankly throughout this process has been a side show. >> one of the people who emphatically agrees with that is house minority leader nancy pelosi. today she gave me her reaction to the latest scandal mongering from the right as well as a frank assessment of house speaker john boehner. >> if he were a woman, they'd be calling him the weakest speaker in history. >> how about that? all of that and in "click 3," there's a man in space making awesome music videos about space you need to see. but we begin tonight with two irs scandals. one that is positively roiling the beltway and the country and another that has received so little attention it might as well be a secret. the president today responded to the scandal everyone's heard about, the one that broke open. when the irs admitted the agency targeted for extra scrutiny conservative and tea party groups seeking nonprofit status
that overthrew him was kind of seen as a relief even though it was a military. president obama spoke with david cameron, they each only took one question, but for each of them, it was one big long compound question with lots of dependent subparts. president obama did expound at some length at some exasperated length on how excited he sees republicans as being about the benghazi attack and the subsequent investigations. >> if this was some effort on our part to try to down play what had happened or tamp it down, that would be a pretty odd thing that three days later we end up putting out all the information that, in fact, has served as the basis for everybody recognizing this was a terrorist attack and that it may have included elements planned by extremists inside of libya. who executes some sort of cover-up or effort to tamp things down for three days? so the whole thing defies logic. and the fact that this keeps on getting churned out has to do with political motivations. >> president obama also saying today that the e-mails leaked on friday that showed the revision process for the administra
